I even thought the cartoon was just too silly as a little kid! the comics are great, and even hold up fairly well today...

COmics are my cannon, but I do love the cartoons and I love it when DDP brings in cartoon characters Like hector ramirez and sparks

The comics without a doubt! Larry Hama is right up there with George Lucas in my book as someone who took a basic idea of good vs. evil and crafted an entire universe full of magnificent characters!
I loved the toon as a kid and I put it in for nostalgia's sake sometimes but as a whole, I think it's quite ridiculous. I remember watching the animated movie when I was 10 and thinking it was way too wacky for my taste. Although the opening battle scenes are bad-A$$!!

Cartoons. I started reading the comic at issue #17, got a subscription starting at issue #27 but it couldn't touch the cartoon in my mind. I watched the first mini-series when it first aired on Saturday mornings when I was 8. I watched it over and over (it was repeated quite a bit and I would curse Johnny Quest when it would replace Joe for a few weeks) until the second mini-series and then when it moved to weekdays. One of my fondest memories as a kid was sitting through all the Saturday morning cartoons (even watching the frigging Smurfs with my sister so I would get my turn) until 11:00 for the grand finale which was the Joe cartoon.

I grew up watching the cartoon and reading the comics at the same time. I guess I'm more of a visual person, so I have to say Cartoon because it was easier for my brain to comprehend HA. But comics for the realism.

i grew up with both however i thought the comics offered a much richer experience for many reasons. the comics offered stories with deep background and much more detail in a media which is breif to say the least. in the short time it took to read the comic your mind and imagination were taken much father than the cartoon ever did(minus the mini series story arcs). i would go over each comic several times to both rear, reread and examine the imagery.

I remember loving the cartoons so much, but they've not aged well. I can still read the comics and feel like they've got a bit of an edge. They were less goofy, and had better stories than the cartoon.
